Abstract:

The design engineer is provided with a guide among the specifications and standards for rigid laminated plastics and related materials. Although the primary concern was with structural and insulating laminates both thermal and electrical, the information give is of wider application. Included are the standards of the National Electrical Manufacturers Association NEMA, the Federal and Military specifications, and those of the American Society of Testing and Materials ASTM and the Society of Automotive Engineers Aeronautical Material Specifications - AMS. The report has as its core a group of Technical Data Sheets 200, giving information on high and low pressure laminates, resins, and reinforcements and finishes. Included are description of the material, applications, applicable specifications, and abridged specification requirements. The guidance structure includes listings of the specifications which cite grade, resin, base material, application, and form. Also given are cross-reference tabulations, showing the multiple specifications which pertain to a specific grade or type of material. Supplemental aids are indexes of stated applications, or resinreinforcement combinations, and of Qualified Products Lists pertaining to laminates. All such materials are cross-coded to the Technical Data Sheets. Author
